Can walking be more efficient? Models show that during walking energy is unnecessarily dissipated. If we can store the 'braking' energy and use it to power walking, our gait pattern can be more efficient. At the lab we are working on exoskeletons that are capable of doing this and let you walk more efficient. Find out how in one of our publications or see how it works in the movie.
This project is collaboration between the University of Twente and the Delft University of Technology.
